During the 1950s in her hometown of New York, Doris Banbury (1930-2015) hung out with like-minded friends who loved to chase and photograph A-list theatre, film, television and radio celebrities including Marilyn Monroe; Elizabeth Taylor and Sammy Davis Jr.  A select few of Doris’s works were purchased by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (here is Doris’s page on SFMOMA website HERE)  And a select few of Doris’s work was featured in a 2010 SFMOMA exhibit by Sandra Phillips.

A Doll made by Lorrie KNITS!

Using a book on Knitted Toys, I started a doll back in 2013 for a couple I met on a plane to Paris in 2009, Moira and Pietro.  When Moira had her first daughter I thought, “I’ll make something for her.”  Of course I got ambitious in the beginning and then, of course, life intervened and I got as far as the doll’s body and sweater.  But, the doll is finished and ready to be assembled.  For the youngest child I will do something smaller, but hopefully fun.  Enjoy the video!
